These are the best songs of last year according to me, because everybody else’s list is awful.
Previous: 100 - 81
(Also, these were 2011’s tracks.)
80. Carly Rae Jepsen “Curiosity
Unfortunately for Carly, “Call Me Maybe” was such a huge (annoying) hit, nobody will really pay attention to anything else she does. The 80s feel of “Curiosity” is just as catchy and not nearly as grating.
79. Beach House “Lazuli”
Have you ever wanted to know what Enya would sound like if she made electronic dream pop? Because that’s basically what this Baltimore duo sounds like.
78. Usher feat. Pharrell “Twisted”
Usher was doing way too much on his last album, but Pharrell is drawing out his inner Raphael Saadiq for this funky old-school soul jam.
77. Deadmau5 “The Veldt”
The poppiest song ever written about a seriously creepy short story, “The Veldt” takes this year’s Foster the People award for I Bet You Didn’t Know That Song Was Really About That.
76. Justin Bieber “Boyfriend”
Justin Bieber has a great voice and even better production. You can try to deny it because he’s an annoying little girl, but facts are facts. ”Boyfriend” sounds like an updated remake of that other Justin’s “Girlfriend” back with NSYNC.
